The year of the snake
With three days left to 2013, MAC cosmetics showcases just how you can use their line to get a festive avant-garde look. The Asian calendar marks 2013 as the Year of the Snake, which is the primary inspiration behind the collection. The company is also of the belief that the snake sign speaks to that of reinvention. Fact is, who doesn’t want to remain vibrant in this ever-changing world?

The look shared today is inspired by a well-known Chinese myth, “The Legend of the White Snake,” where the snake is a very beautiful woman.
The snake-inspired collection is defined by a palette of vibrant shades and shimmering finishes. MAC's exclusive packaging — featuring beauty powder, lipsticks and eye shadows — slithers with chic snakeskin designs.
